INTRODUCTION

This course aims to provide students with a theoritical and practicalunderstanding of the issues involved in the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of clinical trials of health interventions. Students may choose from a number of advanced modules which will allow them to expand and deepen their conceptual and practical skills. The main disciplinary perspectives will come from clinical trials, statistics and epidemiology, but others will contribute in both the core and optional modules. Students will be trained to develop skills to scrutinize information, to critical analyze and carry out research and to communicate effectively.
